Exanet showcase new solution at IBC

Exanet, an award winning developer of network-attached storage (NAS) solutions, demonstrates the ultimate performance NAS with play-out of uncompressed HDTV (Hall 8, Booth 8.521).
The showcase is using the ExaStore™ software-based storage system. This new solution, targeting the broadcast and postproduction market, affirms Exanet’s performance lead in the broadcasting space.
With broadcasting networks planning to significantly expand digital TV coverage by the end of 2006, the need for uncompressed HDTV is now becoming a mainstream requirement. This trend drastically increases the need for high-bandwidth/high-capacity data storage options for the film, broadcast and video postproduction industry. Compared with other storage technologies, NAS (Network Attached Storage) is the natural choice to manage the film industry and broadcasters data. It allows data sharing of very high volumes while substantially simplifies systems integration while lowering the overall costs. Exanet NAS solution does not require any special hardware or software in the workstation or host computer, as it is based on off-the-shelf commodity hardware.
ExaStore™ adds superior performance for the most bandwidth demanding applications.
A suitable platform for HDTV must offer sustained performance fast enough to deliver or accept multiple uncompressed or compressed video streams. To date this has only been possible using other, more costly and complicated technologies. Now, ExaStore™, Exanet’s software-based storage system offers a substantially simpler and low-cost NAS solution specially maximised for rich media application environments.
